In-Store Penneys/Primark Haul

Happy Sundayyyyy..

I hope you're all being lazy like me and are snug by the fire!

Anywhooo, we all love a good find in Penneys so who wouldn't love a haul on MANY finds? I live off Penneys. People who claim it to be tacky clearly haven't paid it a visit in the last year or are going to the wrong locations. If you want to nab the amazing things, you need to be hitting up big Penneys like Mary Street in Dublin and Newbridge. This haul is from Mary's Street, my absolute favourite Penneys in Ireland! This is just an in-store haul but I'll make a video haul on the bits I bought very soon!
(Just so you know, I am in no way endorsed by Penneys to promote their clothes or products. I just love it so much and want to show you all the kind of things I look out for when I shop here!)

On Trend

One of my favourite things in any shop are the outfits put together on the mannequins! Who else is LOVING the 70s trend this season?? The colours, the prints, the flares, the fur, the FAUX everything!!! Irresistible! I adore this little outfit for under €50!!!

A-Line Skirt - €8 (other colours available
Fedora Hat - €10 (other colours available).
Print Top - €13
Fur Gilet - €15 (other colours available)

To continue the 70's vibe is this paisley number which is only €16. Wear it to work, on a night out, to a meal, literally anywhere! Paisley is the must-have print of the season if you ask me! You can mix so much random, yet appropriate colours with each other!


Well would you look at that.. More prints.. But oh so pretty for €13!


"Ribbed for your pleasure"
I'm sorry that sounds so inappropes haha I'm just a F.R.I.E.N.D.S fanatic.. Please tell me you all get that joke? Ribbed material? 
I personally love the ribbed trend anyway and I don't see it deteriorating any time soon!
Slit dress - €14
Ringer tee - €8


This Ivory top is absolutely babe'n! I am obsessed with it. It would be fab over high waisted ripped knee jeans with it's see-through overlay!! So dressy and classy! €13

For the lovers of shirt dresses. So simple, so essential €13

This fab top has been in Penneys for months, and it's obvious why they are continuing to stock it. It's a perfect blouse for the Summer-Autumn transition but still warm enough to wear in Winter. The shades would suit every skin tone. I love the boho vibes and the looseness around the tummy area €13

You all NEED this in your lives!! With plenty of nights out approaching in the coming months, this is deff a top we could re-wear and re-style again and again!! It will suit a lot of body types too. 
And, well, y'know, all black errrrrthing ;) 


I'm loving the fact that Penneys is no longer all about the clothes. They've so much new handy Bits 'n' Bobs in-store! They're all absolute essentials for the most amazing prices!

!Attention College Go-ers! 
You neeeeed this! How frigging cute is this alphabet ice cube tray.. And think about the funny things you could come up with for house parties? For the price and the lols, why the hell not? 

Believe me you actually never know when you'll need measuring tape... This one is so super cute!

Ok, you're actually going to think I'm a blogger turned builder lol.. What with the tape and now this mini tool set. But seriously, how God damn handy is this?? And with Christmas just around the corner, little contraptions like this are much needed for opening all sorts of things!

So punny and practical..

Who else follows blogger Anouska Proetta Brandon on Snapchat ? (anouskapb)
She has the coolest camera lenses for her phone from the award winning "Izzi Gadgets" which retail at about $50 and I'm sure there would be shipping fees on top of that. Well I have found a dupe in Penneys for a mere €8!!!!! It has 3 clip-on lenses. I'm sure it's not as good as the Izzi product, but I have bought it and will be letting you all know in my video haul very soon how good or bad they are! I'd advise you to pick one up very lively as these will most definitely be a sell-out if they're any way good!

People pleeeeease stop spending money on unreliable Apple chargers.. Penneys is here to save the day! €1 and feckin' 50c will not break you!

Yaaaaay I can finally stop bringing all my chargers to college!! I've been waiting to pick up a power bank ever since Nuala Gorham (blogger) posted about it from a Primark Press Day Event.. It's a handbag essential and pink.. And for €7 you cannot go wrong. There's also one for €15 which can do a double charge! (Oh by the way Nuala's snapchat is Nualsg)

Beauty and Accessories

I have to say Penneys have really upped their make-up game as of late! Take in the pigmentation in this matte lipstick crayon. And the price, like seriously??? Oh and of course the cutest packaging!

Am I the only one who constantly misplaces their tweezers? Keep them brows on point for €1.50!!

In case you didn't already know, Penneys now have a beauty bar in the Mary St. store. How cool is that?? I'll go through the list of things in my video haul!

It's things like these which make me wish I wore glasses sometimes :(
Such pretty glasses cases!!!

I'm loving these keyring Pom-Poms!! Never lose your keys or bag again!!

Have you seen the range of belts lately? Perfection.

Ok I've been so super excited to show you all these bags which are lined with wool. They're so so cute and on-tend! The handbag is €10 and Tote is €12. I think these will be a huge hit!

Plum perfection.. €14

You will never travel boringly again. These cases are a mix of cool and class for only €45! Deal!

Kind of really want this soo much super duper a lot wow! This is me all over but why no options for Huawei Ascend and iPod 5 :(((((((
Maybe some other lucky soul will benefit from seeing this.. On a serious note though, phone cases for €1.50.. SOLD!

Personally I don't DIY dye my hair, but for anyone who does or is thinking about doing so, can you believe that this set is actually €1.50? Yooou need this now!!

I am absolutely guilty as charged for not cleaning my makeup brushes. But i do have this cleaner and works wonders, because it leaves them spotless and smelling fresh! I really reccomend it!

Winter Warmers & Footwear

No no I actually wish I didn't have so many coats because this needs to be a part of my life story.....
River Island basically have the exact same one or variations of this for €100+ ...  You won't believe me but this is €40.. NEED .. PRONTO

I'm too happy that the ombré fur gilet trend is still going. Long may it live

I am one of those people who refuses to spend more than €10 on a scarf lol.. Especially when they're just as fashionable in Penneys as in the other high-street shops! This scarf is only one example of the amazing range. It has a different pattern on each side. How cool is that? Feelin' monochrome on a Monday and tartan on a Tuesday.. And it's all in one scarf. €9

Excuse the horrible pic but ye had to know that there is the most stunning trench coats in Khaki, Camel, Navy, Burgundy available for €21.. Have you ever met such good prices?

I'm not really a cape person but this one I'd make an exception for this one. This rust colour is everything to me right now and the pattern and tassels are just bonuses to this awesome outfit finisher! Can't believe it's only €20 too!

Boots like these should shut anyone up who slate Penneys. These metallic babies are amazingly stylish and practical for only €23.. They would dress up any outfit!

I don't know what it is but I'm mad for all things leopard print these days. So of course I was instantly drawn to these courts. They are perfect for under a pair of jeans and a beige tee. And guess the hell what?? They are €11!!!!

Finally, I think these are the most perfect boots to finish on! I am loving grey, the mid-length and do not even get me started on those heels. Oh my days... Wowzers for €25

I hope you all enjoyed reading and will be rushing to Penneys to grab some bits you've seen on this haul. As I said, my video haul will be uploaded shortly detailing things I actually bought :)

Until next time,

Clóda xX
